several school districts in eastern iowa are now using propane buses instead of the older diesel models. cedar rapids, linn mar, vinton-shellsburg are just some of those districts. propane is considered a greener alternative to diesel. it emits fewer greenhouse gases because it has a lower carbon content compared to diesel. propane buses cost about 5 thousand dollars more than their diesel counterparts. but districts say they recoup the cost from lower propane prices. right now, diesel is selling for 2 dollars and 18 cents per gallon. midwest residential propane is selling for 1 dollar and 46 cents per gallon, according to the u-s energy information administration. the buses are also becoming a popular option for harsh iowa winters. as kcrg-tv9's jill kasparie reports, propane buses are becoming the way of the future. nats of bus rolling in some new

rolling into eastern iowa. they're opening the door to savings. "the fuel itself is probably about a third of the cost of running a diesel fuel. and then, in an oil change we only have to change seven quarts of oil versus 18 to 29 with some of our buses." the cedar rapids school district is expecting to receive its new propane- fueled buses in time for next school year. up the road at linn-mar - drivers started using their four new propane buses this school year. "we are projecting about $3,200 a year of savings per bus, and that's not just in fuel but in re-occurring maintenance costs." those who sell the buses say there's something else that's grabbing the interest of iowa school districts. propane buses don't have problems in the bitter cold, like diesel engines. "with a diesel bus, number one you are going to hope that you have it plugged in, number two you are going to hope you have your fuel properly blended so you don't have a gelling issue, which will leave that sitting basically along the road, which then involves a tow truck."

when it's 40 below earlier this week with temperatures hovering around zero, linn-mar's transportation manager put his new buses to the test. "we did have one bus ice up that morning, a diesel bus, had no issues with the propane operation what-so-ever " most school districts also plug buses into block heaters to warm them for the cold dayayhead. linn-mar says it doesn't even do that with its propane buses. "we have actually opted this year to run our without using the block heaters just to test them and we have had no issues at all." tv-9's jill kasparie with that story. linn-mar had to purchase a propane fueling system for 27 thousand dollars. cedar rapids says it's going to build a 10 thousand dollar base and plans to lease the fueling equipment. a federal appeals court has refused to reduce the sentence for a former iowa state university scientist who falsified aids
